Forum: web Subject: Download limit Wayback Machine

Hello,

there seems to be a download limit of 100MB to files in the Wayback Machine, is this by purpose or is it a server misconfiguration/bug?

Example:

https://web.archive.org/web/20051202043416/http://www.isri.unlv.edu/downloads/3b.tgz

Download will stop at 100MB and will refuse to continue. Is there another way to access files from the archive? I tried several download managers, wget, different browsers, nothing seems to help.

Best,

Florian

There seems to be a 1MB limit on files here:

https://web.archive.org/web/20000621143352/http://www.tdh.state.tx.us/bvs/registra/birthidx/birthidx.htm

Downloads begin properly, then timeout.

Okay, same behavior as on the other file.
Maybe the limit is configured by type of file, 1MB for .exe, 100MB for .tgz, maybe some default settings by the used web server.
